Nationals of Australia are not allowed to travel out of Australia, except for people who regularly reside in another country, airline and maritime crew, freight personnel, offshore facility personnel, government personnel, and Australian Defence Force personnel. . If you are looking to book a trip to Sydney and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about travelling during COVID-19.
